Finally the announcement of Gojira’s new album “L’Enfant Sauvage” (translates to The Wild Child), set to release for the summer via Roadrunner Records.

Gojira’s sound is not easily classifiable due to their many styles: technical, death, thrash and progressive metal. Frontman Joe Duplantier said about the new album, “It’s Gojira but wiser and heavier. Our music is always evolving. … I respect everything that’s been done before, but I hope we’re digging in another direction. It’s not a technical direction. It’s a more spiritual direction. I think we’re getting closer to the core of why we’re doing this music. It’s hard to describe it. Until I hear the new album it’s hard to have a clear vision of it. Fuck it, it’s just better!

A special collectors package of L’Enfant Sauvage will feature two bonus tracks along with the double-colored vinyl version of the record and an exclusive t-shirt. “L’Enfant Sauvage” is Gojira’s first album since their 2008 release “Way of All Flesh”. The new album had been delayed due to a hard drive failure.
